Hyo-Joon or Joon to us, came to IJGA Hilton Head in 2019. She was a quick learner and always had dreams of playing on the LPGA. As soon as Joon turned 18 she decided to turn pro and head to the LPGA Qualifying school Stage 1 in Palm Springs, California. Joon didn’t make it all the way to the final stage, however, she was able to secure a spot on the Epson Tour. The Epson tour is the Junior tour to the LPGA and if a player finishes in the top 10 on the money list they are able to secure full LPGA TOUR card the following season. That is exactly what Joon accomplished. As a rookie on the Epson tour she had 5 top 10 finishes and finished 9 times inside the top 20. These stats allowed Hyo Joon to make over $78,000 and finish 10th on the money list. It is very exciting to see her dreams come true and all the hard work and effort she put in pay off. Look out for Joon this season on the LPGA TOUR!
